Supportive Care Service

The supportive care service provides patient and family centered care that offers quality of life for patients with life limiting illnesses by anticipating, preventing, and treating suffering.

Supportive care includes:

  • Careful pain and symptom assessment and control
  • Psychosocial and spiritual support to patients and families
  • Discussion about patients' goals for care so that they can be respected
  • Coordination of services among the different teams treating an individual
  • Assistance with identifying the patient's and family's preferred place of care and discharge (home, nursing home, long-term acute hospital, or in-patient hospice)

The supportive care team consists of physicians, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, speech therapists, chaplains, and pharmacists.

Patients and families can request a supportive care consultation by asking their physician.
